We are in a severe thunderstorm warning right now, and I hear an awful lot of rumbles to the west. I hope this thing misses us.

No, they don't. *sigh* I really miss the boxes of Shiny Brites we had when I was a child. I have a box of the repros, but they just aren't as good as the real ones.

We're getting hammered with thunder, lightning, and POURING rain. It's been going on for a while now. It's so dark, because the clouds are so thick.

Storms missed us, just a lot of rain.

I have been perusing Ebay looking at Christmas decorations, so much I want, especially all the Possible Dreams Santas.
